The King’s College is pleased to announce the King’s student cabinet for the 2021-22 academic year.

Elected in February, Brent Buterbaugh (PPE ’22) will lead the cabinet as the Student Body President. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Brent previously served as the Chamberlain of the House of C.S. Lewis and is currently completing his term as director of student organizations on the King’s Council.

Buterbaugh says, “I’m looking forward to working with House and organization leadership to rebuild and strengthen the student community at King’s. It’s going to be a challenging but exciting year as we revisit and re-introduce traditions.” Read his full platform online.

Buterbaugh appointed five members to his cabinet who will manage different areas of leadership. The Student Handbook describes the cabinet’s role as follows: “Together they determine student initiative funding, plan student events (e.g. Fall Picnic, Spring Formal), oversee student organizations, and address student concerns.” The new cabinet was sworn in on Monday, April 26, and will begin meeting weekly to prepare for next year.

Makenna McCoy (PPE ’22) will serve as director of communications. A member of the House of Barton, McCoy’s experience includes vice president of the Students for Life club at King’s and faculty assistant for Dr. Kelly Lehtonen’s College Writing and Research Writing courses. McCoy hails from Greenville, N.C.

McCoy says, “I am excited about the opportunity to serve as a bridge between students and faculty and staff and keep the communication lines flowing. I hope to listen to big ideas from all segments of the student body and break those ideas into concrete steps so that we can bring them to fruition.”

Noah Ebel (Finance Dec ’22) will be the Council’s director of finance. He is from Pewaukee, Wis. and his goal for the role is to “serve the student body and set a good example for others.” A member of the House of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, he has worked as a college financial representative at Northwestern Mutual and faculty assistant for Prof. Brian Brenberg’s Business Communications and Presentations course.

Kylia Ford (PPE ’23) will be director of student events. She previously served as the competitions and events associate in the House of Susan B. Anthony and as vice president of The King’s Debate Society. Her hometown in Melbourne, Fla.

Ford says, “I look forward to planning and executing a variety of events for students. It is so important to build authentic relationships with people to effectively serve and strengthen our community. We aren’t always going to want to wax philosophic—playing a game of soccer can be relaxing—and there is something comforting in seeing your cultural food at a school-sponsored event. I want all students to experience deep community at King’s!”

Abby Roth (Business ’23) will serve as director of student organizations and hopes to help new and current students find community through orgs while also supporting the student body as a whole. Hailing from Temecula, Calif., she currently serves as Helmsman of the House of Margaret Thatcher, vice president of The Click photography club, and a Student Admissions Specialist in the Admissions department.

Moses Kazanjian (Business ’23) will be the Council’s director of spiritual life. He was born and raised in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and has interned as a junior recruiter at Turas Group, an international recruiting firm. He currently serves as Chamberlain of the House of Ronald Reagan.

“I am looking forward to working with our Spiritual Life Associates, providing resources to build them up as leaders and watch them work in their Houses,” says Kazanjian. “They are one example of the unique way our community is set up to promote student flourishing.”
